Bio Photo Hi, my name is Suzanne Tarkington.

New Year 2014. We have made a move to Goliad County which is great because that is where my Dad's side of the family is from. So now I will concentrate my searching and photographing in the cemeteries around goliad, vicoria and port lavaca.

I live in Kerens Texas and have ready access to cemeteries in and around Kerens. My closest are Bazette Baptist Church cemetery and Prairie Point cemetery, but I will do my best to get to the cemeteries in Henderson County also.

If you have any requests, please let me know and I will be happy to go and photograph the grave site.

I'm also a genealogy researcher which is how I became interested in Find A Grave. I also do headstone rubbings. This is a great way to preserve stones that are getting weather worn.

I have completed photographing all the headstones (that are readable) at Post Oak Cemetery. There are 3 headstones that I will do rubbings on and will post.I have also completed photographing all the headstones at Oak Grove cemetery in Kerens.

My next project is to photograph all the stones at the Eureka cemetery, Bazette cemetery and Prairie Point cemetery. There are some beautiful stones at all of them that I want to do rubbings on.

I have a book with all the names of the people buried in Bazette and Prairie Point cemeteries. A lot of the names also have family info (ie parents names, children, etc). Please message me via find a grave to be given this information.

I'm a retired nurse so I have 7 days a week to do it. Please allow me the full 14 days to get the photograph taken and up on the memorial page.

If you want to use the images I have photographed, please contact me.

Thank you in advance!!!!

Dear Suzanne,

I have three relatives in the Hamilton- Beeman Cemetery at Retreat/Corsicana, TX. I understand from a message you posted on the photo request page that you are working to document this cemetery.
Do you need help? I can sometimes give an hour or two to the service of photographing the tombstones, or to recording a grid. I have done several of both in the Birdston Cemetery and at Winkler. I would like to pitch in when I can to get this data on-line and available for other searchers.
My name is Betty Lambert and can be reached by e-mail
